About
Salinia Wine Company

Residing within ten miles of the Sonoma coastline, the three benchmark vineyards of Salinia Wine Company sit at an elevation of 800 feet on the second coastal ridge.

Introducing Salinia Wine Company

With cool winds and fog that travel up the valley and over the vineyards at Heintz Ranch and at W.E. Bottoms, Salinia is perfectly positioned to produce their three signature wines under the Salinia banner: a beautiful Chardonnay and Syrah from the Charles Heintz Vineyard, and a Pinot Noir from a small two and a half acre parcel named W.E. Bottoms Vineyard, which is tucked away on a dead end street at the top of Harrison Grade in the Russian River region.

Equipped with a degree in Viticulture & Enology from Davis, Kevin Kelley then relocated with his wife Jennifer to Nuits Saint Georges, where he worked with Jean-Nicholas Meo at Domaine Meo-Camuzet in Vosne-Romanee for a few years, while living with Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri-Gouges. Living and working in such close proximity to these two icons gave Kevin incredible access to their lives as vigneron and to their purpose of making wines of place.

As an extension of his creations at Salinia, Kevin launched the Natural Process Alliance (NPA) a second project of "one-offs" that will continue to vary from vintage to vintage. Evolving expressions of Kevin's interpretations of the vineyards with which he works, this addition to his portfolio allows for such experimental works that include a Skin Fermented Chardonnay from the vineyards of Charles Heintz, and a Red Field Blend of five red and five white grape varieties from the Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard Sunhawk Farms in Mendocino.
